I say this is Japanese-style because it is similar to the sesame chicken served at a Japanese restaurant in my hometown. Of course they set it on fire and all of that stuff, so it isn't quite as good, but it is close enough for home. My family loves this. I serve it with Copycat Kobe Style Fried Rice With " Shrimp Sauce".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Use the sesame oil to coat a wok or nonstick pan.
  2. Add chicken and cook over low heat until almost cooked through.
  3. Mix the ginger, onion powder, garlic powder, and sesame seeds in a small bowl.
  4. Sprinkle over chicken and saute over medium-high heat.
  5. Turn heat to high and add soy sauce, sautéing until fully incorporated and the chicken is slightly seared.
  6. Serve immediately.

Good but not my favorite. The Japanese steak house by my house uses more of a teriyaki recipe so I might have been expecting something different. I really enjoyed the rice that is suggested.

The only complaint we have about this chicken is the saltiness, which is partially my fault. I didn't have onion powder so I subbed onion salt. Won't make that mistake again! Other than that, this is the most wonderful moist, flavorful chicken! We think this was better than what we get at the local restaurant! Thank you so much for posting this! Definately going to make it into regular rotation!
